Provoked by the poll results printed last week, I set about analysing my, relationship with the various computers I share my day with.
One I use mainly for structural analysis and for scanning my design sketches and because its large LCD screen is easy on the eyes.
Another I use to run design software, to prepare spreadsheet calculations and to browse the internet for product literature and technical information.
It's basically a second screen to my laptop which I use for word processing, e-mail communication, accessing drawings on client extranets and so on.
So am I obsessed, or are these daily companions powerful tools that make me more productive? Perhaps both!
